I'm still in Canmore, but this painting is from a photo I took in Craftsbury. Looking through the crab apple tree on Murphy's field. Its pretty similar to some other wintery-shadowy paintings I did last year. So I guess in that sense its a bit boring, but I had fun painting it! I love when nature creates such bold contrasts, deep colors, and almost abstract shapes and patterns. And as always I'm also enamored of trees of all types.
Looking back at the painting now, I'm not sure I gave the sun enough warmth--I might have to go back and fix that!
